On April 5, 2014 we were happy to welcome 11 new brothers into our chapter by initiating them into the Kappa Sigma fraternity. Congratulations to Nick Andrade, Jack Donovan, Matt Fyfe, Wilson Jiang, Nick Lennan, Dylan LoBue, Patricio Lorenzana, Levon Merian, John Pham, Max Scully, and Ari Wigdor! We are so honored to have such an outstanding group of men join our brotherhood.
Shortly after the brothers of Gamma-Delta here at Umass Amherst were initiated into Kappa Sigma, they were called upon by Kappa Sigma’s national headquarters to help initiate the Beta-Kappa colony at the University of New Hampshire. After road tripping to UNH, a few of our brothers assisted Kappa Sigma’s from universities like Northeastern and BU to initiate Beta-Kappa. Congrats to all of our new Kappa Sigma brothers at Beta-Kappa! We are honored to have such a fine group of men join our brotherhood. A.E.K.Δ.B gentlemen!
Each Spring the entire Greek Life community at the University of Massachusetts Amherst comes together to benefit one very important philanthropy cause called Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks in a non-profit that raises global awareness for autism and financially supports autism research. The actual Autism Speaks event consisted of a 5k run as well as free music, food, drinks, and various activities for children to participate. Every fraternity and sorority on UMass’ campus engages in fundraising efforts and tries to generate the greatest amount of student and community involvement in the Autism Speaks event. This year Kappa Sigma was chosen to co-host the event with 4 other fraternities and sororities.
Autism Speaks was held at Kendrick Park on Sunday April 6, 2014. Leading up to the event, Kappa Sigma donated over 150 hours of community service toward raising awareness for the event. We also hosted a slider eating contest as our Autism Speaks fundraiser and raised over $2,000 toward our cause. Through our brothers philanthropic efforts, we collectively raised over $8,000 for Autism Speaks – more money than any other fraternity or sorority on campus. We extend a huge thank you to all who contributed to our cause and to all the Kappa Sigma brothers for their hard work in the weeks leading up to the event.
